The Body of Myth
Mythology, Shamanic Trance, and the Sacred Geography of the Body
Paperback ISBN: 0892814098
This book carries on from the works of Carl Jung and Joseph Campbell to show how the portrayal of consciousness embodied in myth can be extended to a reappraisal of the laws of physics; before they are descriptions of the world, these laws--like myths--are descriptions of the human nervous system.
The Book of Beasties
Your A-to-Z Guide to the Illuminating Wisdom of Spirit Animals
Paperback ISBN: 1683640497
Beastie [bee-stee]: The overarching spirit of any species of insect, reptile, bird, mammal, or mythical creature that exists or has ever existed, from salmon and dragon?ies to woolly mammoths and unicorns. As more and more people seek help with the challenges of modern life, many of us are looking to the wisdom of nature for guidance—especially when it comes in the form of spirit animals. In a quirky and delightful style, Sarah Seidelmann’s The Book of Beasties introduces us to the power of animal totems, or “beasties,” inviting us to explore why certain animals show up in our lives and what teachings they may be trying to share. “A message brought by a beastie may be about beauty or family or work,” teaches Sarah “It might offer you guidance on a prickly problem. Or it might make you smile just when you need it.” Perfect for seekers and shamans alike, created for people who live in the countryside or the big city, here is a book that decodes nature mysticism and invites you to explore the world of spirit animals.
